My friend bought an interface and its great if you just plug the guitar straight in but...it only comes out clean then. We tried using a pedal and it worked but it hardly sound like real distortion. Is there a way i can get my amplifier hooked up to the interface with the guitar??

If you amp has a line out jack, you can run a cable from that into your interface. Other than that you will need to mic your amp.

You probably need an cabinet simulator.
Or EQ it so you take out everything above 5khkz and everything below 100hz, add a slight mid scoop around 500hz
rough idea of the EQ curve you'd get: http://www.runoffgroove.com/condor-marshall.png

or the line out/fx send/headphone jack if there is one from your amp would also work.

What program do u use? In some of the recording programs u can put distortion on the track u recorded, also what interface does ur friend have?
Edit: But I would do wat ICanPlayWell said, mic ur amp, interfaces arent bad for that unless ur friends doesnt have a mic input

I tried the line out thing from the amp into the interface...but it wasnt picking up anysound, im not really sure why? I did it right i think. Plugged guitar into amp, amp into interface interface into comp and i had the software up (doesnt provide distortion) and it just wasnt picking any sound up whatsoever...i had the volume up, i made sure of that. Whats wrong?

EDIT: Is it possible im using the wrong cable? It fits tho.

Could be possible. Do you have it in the right jack?
